So Dee likes to listen to audio books. Yes so do I (Stephen Fry's Harry Potter versions are my favourites) but I prefer the dvd's. I have watched these two more times than I care to remember. I don't really watch them anymore, just listen to them, knowing what's coming next, anticipating the next scene. I love Pride and Prejudice. Or is it just Mr Darcy I love?
But now here's the thing, Who makes the better Elizabeth? For me it has to be Keira, she seems much more 'believable' (and so much less make up!). In fact, I prefer all the goodies from this version (although Bingley should not have red hair) and the baddies are much better in the BBC version. Mr Collins and Lady Catherine a la BBC are just so horrible they're brilliant. And Jullia Sawalha's Lydia is inspired.
But Mr Darcy? Oh Mr Darcy. Heavy sigh. I love them both. Colin Firth is so very much the English Gentleman, whilst Matthew Macfadyen is so misunderstood, I just want to beat Elizabeth up and tell her to stop arsing around. He loves you woman - are you blind?
So who's it to be? Jennifer or Keira? Colin or Matthew? Come on all you lurkers, show yourselves - decide!
